The University of Maniand Eastern Shore had its origin on September 13, 1886. Initi- 
ated under the auspices of the Delaware Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, the . 
Delaware Conference Academy was established in Princess Anne on that date with nine 
students and one faculty. 

Records reveal that 37 students were enrolled by the end of the year. Subsequently, the 
institution bore the title of Industrial Branch of Morgan State College, still under the influence 
of the Delaware Conference. As originally operated by Morgan State Col- 
lege under the control of the Methodist Church, the institution was known 
as Princess Anne Academy. 

' The State of Mar}dand, in operating its land-grant program at the Maryland Agricultural 
College at College Park, to which Afro-Americans were not admitted as students, sought to 
provide a Land-Grant program for Afro- Americans and assumed control of the Princegs Anne 
Academy, renaming it the Eastern Shore Branch of the Maryland Agricultural College. The 
arrangement was effected in 1919. 

In 1926. the College passed into complete control and ownership of the State and the 
University of Maryland was designated as the administrative agency. In 1948, the Eastern 
Shore Branch of the University of Maryland, popularly kYiown as Princess Anne College, 
became officially Maryland State College, a Division of the University of Maryland. ■ 

On July 1. 1970, Maryland State College biecame the University of Maryland Eastern 
Shore. With the strong support of the Maryland Board of Regents, Systems Administration, 
and the faculty, UMES has developed an academic program above and perhaps more impres- 
sive than any other higher educational institution of its size in the East. 

Today, the University offers major programs leading to the B.A. and 
B.S. degrees in 30 disciplines in tht arts and sciences, professional 
studies and agricultural sciences. In addition, UMES presents 13 teaching 
degree programs and eight pre-professional programs, as well, as an Honors 
Program designed in cooperation with the University of Maryland at Balti- 
more to prepare students for professional school study. 

From its original building known as "Olney;' constructed in 1798, when George Wash; 
ington was still alive, the University now has over 700 acres, 28 major 
buildings and 41 other units. Today the University offers not only a 
well-constructed and varied academic program, but a beautiful campus. It 
provides today's student, through a versatile student life, an opportu- 
nity to develop into a well-rounded individual who is able to assume 
leadership in today's society. As the University of Maryland Eastern 
Shore enters its second century, it continues with an even greater vigor; 
the -extent of progress and the apex of quality continue to expand. 

Within the last decade, UMES has added 17 new degree-granting programs to its aca- 
demic roster. Graduates of these programs often choose to remain on the Delmarva Peninsula, 
procuring careers in their areas of professional study, to benefit the region, particularly the 
Lower Eastern Shore. The prediction is that this local enrichment will continue as more 
students enroll in the University's programs of business and economics, physical therapy, 
hotel and restaurant management, poultry technology and management, and computer sci- 
ence. Likewise the outlook is'good for the sciences, agriculture, liberal arts and graduate

Salutations prestigious Class of 2006,

moments that I hold so dear to my heart, will not be as precious, if I did not have the support of my fellow hawks, the class 
of 2006. So I extend a sincere thank you to each and eveiy one of you for your support and encouragement, as I lead us 
all to the land of great careers and unstoppable success. Each of us are gifted and have been given the tools to excel at

what you have accomplished, be bold in all that you do, and most importantly remember to FLY HIGH, AND SOAR 
EVEN HIGHER. I will leave you with these few words of advice, from our current Miss UMES 2005-2006. In order to 
achieve great things in life, "We Must Lift the Vail of Ignorance off Our People and Rise to the Challenge of Excellence 
through Education." Stay strong and I hope the journey that we have taken thus far was a great one. 

Sincerely yours

Greetings Hawks, 

CAMPUS; (410)651-6442 
FAX: (410) 651-7936 

Most people may think that yearbook is about just about taking pictures. Well let 
me be the first to tell you, that you are wrong. It is hard work and time consuming, and 
you have to be dedicated. This year I wanted the yearbook to be unique, but still have that 
Hawk Pride that had been seen in the previous years. So that meant I was in the office 
24/7. This year was especially difficult because I had to build a yearbook staff from the 
ground up. I was the only existing member and had to have a staff that new what they 
where doing. There was no time for training and no time for games. We had to jump 
right into the book. But we prevailed and started a new trend for the yearbook, as well as 
brought it back to life. We have new faces, new ideas and a new book. 

This book would not have been possible if it was not for that help of so many 
wonderful people. I would first like to give a thank you to Mr. Dwayne M. Walker. You 
keep me focused. And you made sure I was on my deadlines. Next I would like to thank 
Dr. Brown and Ms. Woolford. I know I was in the Student Affairs office almost everyday 
trying to get something for the yearbook office. Thank you both for putting up with my 
many demands and me. I cannot forget Mr. Whittiker, it was because of you that I even 
starting working for the yearbook and for that matter how to work on a yearbook. You 
showed me the ropes and what it meant to be a part of the staff Last but not least I have 
to thank my staff, y'all have worked so hard, you all need to give yourselves a pat on the 
back. We completed this book done on time and it looks good. 

I have to give a shout out to my man Brian, you were by my side at all times, and 
if you were not all I had to do is call and you would be there. I know with you on the staff 
the yearbook will get better year after year and eventually be great. And I have to shout 
out my Blue and White family. Girls we hang in there and cross into the wonderful land 
of the Zeta Phi Beta. It was hard to but we did it and I love all of you. So stay true Blue. 
Thank you all. I hope everyone enjoys the book as much as the staff and I enjoyed 
making it.

The HAWKS and the 
community got their first look 
at this years Fighting Hawks at 
Midnight Madness. The squad 
is made up of nine freshman, 
two sophomores, two juniors, 
and three seniors. 

A stand-out on this team 
is senior Tim Parham from Chi- 
cago, IlHnios. Tim stands 6'9, 
240 pounds. Earlier this year 
Tim removed himself from the 
NBA draft and decided to com- 
plete his college career with the 
Fighting Hawks. Last season 
he led the MEAC in rebounds 
per game and lead his team in 
points per game, rebounds per 
game, blocks per game, field 
goals and free throws made. 
This criminal justice major has 
high expectatiions fr)r his team 
and is looking for a better year. 

The team's schedule is a 
challeging one. The Hawks will 
face ranked teams like Iowa 
and Marshall. Majority of the 
games are played on the road 
and a couple of games will be 
played on ESPNU. 

Hawk fans and the men's 
team are expecting a good and 
exciting season. LET'S GO

Mmmm Crabs!!! 

Can you think of a place where 
there is enough food to feed 2500 
hungry students? Can you think of 
place where college students can act 
like three year-olds? Well there is a 
place, and it was called SEPTEMBER 
FEST!!! This years SEPTEMBER 
FEST was held in the gym of the 
Hytche Center. Students filled their 
faces with all-you-can eat seafood, 
meat and dessert. After you filled up 
with delicious food you could climbed 
the enflatuable walls or race your 
friends through an enflatuable maze. 
Even though the weather outside was 
gloomy that day, the atmoshere in the 
Hytche Center was sunny and warm. 
Thanks to the wonderful Dining 
Services staff and the students from 
the Hotel and Resteraunt Manage- 
ment department, this years SEP-
